MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.188.9432 And Halayudha Valadeva and Janardana Krishna and the chief of the Vrishni, Andhaka, and Yadava tribes who obeyed the leadership of Krishna were also there, viewing the scene.
Mbh.1.206.10178 They who have Rama Valadeva as their ally, and Janardana Krishna as their counsellor, and Satyaki as their partisan, have already defeated everybody in war.
Mbh.1.220.10729 Tell me, O Janardana, by what means I may obtain her.
Mbh.1.221.10753 Then Valadeva, white and tall as the peak of Kailasa, decked with garlands of wild flowers and attired in blue robes, and proud and intoxicated with drink, said these words: Ye senseless men, what are ye doing, when Janardana sitteth silent?
Mbh.1.221.10761 Then Rama, that oppressor of foes, spoke unto Vasudeva, saying, Why, O Janardana, sittest thou, gazing silently?
Mbh.1.222.10839 Well-pleased, Janardana also gave them a thousand mares with gold harnesses and of colour white as the beams of the moon.
Mbh.1.222.10842 Janardana also gave unto them hundreds of thousands of draft horses from the country of the Valhikas as Subhadra's excellent dower.
Mbh.1.223.10900 O slayer of Madhu, sporting there in the company of friends, we will, O Janardana, return in the evening.
Mbh.1.229.11220 O thou of mighty arms, let alone battling with them, no one, could even gaze at Arjuna and Janardana of dark hue.
Mbh.2.2.30 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, Janardana deserving the worship of all, having lived happily at Khandavaprastha for some time, and having been treated all the while with respectful love and affection by the sons of Pritha, became desirous one day of leaving Khandavaprastha to behold his father.
Mbh.2.2.65 Embracing Pradyumna, Shamva, Nishatha, Charudeshna, Gada, Aniruddha and Bhanu, and obtaining the leave of all the elderly men, Janardana entered the apartments of Rukmini
Mbh.2.13.555 And having arrived at Indraprastha, Janardana approached Yudhisthira without loss of time.
Mbh.2.13.557 And Janardana then went with a cheerful heart to his father's sister Kunti.
Mbh.2.15.667 O Janardana, endued with energy and intelligence, these that have been born in our race think that some one amongst them will at one time become the foremost amongst all Kshatriyas.
Mbh.2.16.699 Both Bhima and Arjuna, I regard as my eyes, and thee, O Janardana as my mind.
Mbh.2.16.706 O Janardana, desisting from this act seemeth to me to be beneficial.
Mbh.2.23.1064 And O king, Janardana beholding the monarch tired, addressed Bhima of terrible deeds, and as if to stimulate him said, O son of Kunti, a foe that is fatigued cannot be pressed for if pressed at such a time he may even die.
Mbh.2.24.1124 Janardana of great intelligence, caused his foe Jarasandha to be slain through the instrumentality of the Pandavas.
Mbh.3.12.601 Vaisampayana continued, And when on account of the wrongs of Pritha's sons, Janardana had thus got into a passion, and seemed bent upon consuming all created things, Arjuna exerted himself to pacify him.
Mbh.3.12.617 O Janardana, at each sacrifice thou didst offer, according to shares, gold by hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.3.12.630 And, O Janardana, thou hast also appropriate unto thyself the sacred city of Dwarka, abounding in wealth and agreeable unto the Rishi themselves, and thou wilt submerge it at the end within the ocean!
Mbh.3.12.641 Vaisampayana continued, Having addressed Krishna thus, the illustrious Pandava, who was the soul of Krishna, became dumb, when Janardana in reply addressed that son of Pritha saying, Thou art mine and I am thine, while all that is mine is thine also!
Mbh.3.12.668 Oh, fie on the might of Bhimasena, fie on the Gandiva of Arjuna, for they, O Janardana, both suffered me to be thus disgraced by little men!
Mbh.3.12.675 For their sake, O Janardana, it was necessary to protect me!
Mbh.3.12.684 But, O Janardana, Bhima digested that poison with the food, without sustaining any injury, for, O best of men and mighty-armed one, Bhima's days had not been ended!
Mbh.3.14.786 And, O king, he further said, That Janardana shall I slay, who, wretch that he is, hath killed my brother who was but a boy of tender years, and who was slain not on the field of battle, unprepared as he was'
Mbh.3.18.892 O son of Janardana, I have not been confounded, nor hath fear taken possession of me.
Mbh.3.21.1034 Cease, O Janardana!
Mbh.3.51.2562 Even these, O king, were Krishna's words unto Yudhishthira, who, on the conclusion of Krishna's speech, addressed him in that meeting of heroes and in the hearing of all those brave warriors headed by Dhrishtadyumna, saying, O Janardana, I accept these words of thine as truth.
Mbh.3.52.2599 Turning away from the woods, let us, summoning Partha and Janardana, slay, O king, the sons of Dhritarashtra, even before the twelve years are complete.
Mbh.3.84.4546 There the gods with Brahma at their head, Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, the Adityas, the Vasus, and the Rudras, all adore Janardana, in that tirtha, and Vishnu of wonderful deeds hath become known as Salagrama.
Mbh.3.187.9296 O tiger among men, this Janardana attired in yellow robes is the grand Mover and Creator of all, the Soul and Framer of all things, and the lord of all!
Mbh.3.188.9500 And the Deity, of eyes large as lotus leaves, seen by me, in days of yore is this tiger among men, this Janardana who hath become thy relative!
Mbh.3.188.9507 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the sons of Pritha and those bulls among men, the twins, along with Draupadi, all bowed down unto Janardana.
Mbh.3.233.11821 SECTION CCXXXIII Vaisampayana said, Then Kesava, the slayer of Madhu, also called Janardana, having conversed on various agreeable themes with the illustrious sons of Pandu and with those Brahmanas that were headed by Markandeya and having bid them farewell, mounted his car and called for Satyabhama.
Mbh.3.266.12955 The warring princes of the Andhaka and the Vrishni races, with Janardana at their head, and the mighty bowmen of the Kaikeya tribe, will all follow in my wake with great ardour.
Mbh.4.72.2812 And then, after the expiry of the thirteenth year, the five Pandavas took up their abode in one of Virata's towns called Upaplavya, and Vibhatsu, the son of Pandu, brought over Abhimanyu and Janardana, and also many people of the Dasarha race from the Anarta country.
Mbh.4.72.2833 And having accepted her, the son of Pritha, with Janardana before him, caused the nuptial ceremonies to be performed of the illustrious son of Subhadra.
Mbh.5.30.1315 I would also bid farewell to Janardana, to Bhima and Arjuna, to the son of Madri, to Satyaki, and to Chekitana, and take my departure.
Mbh.5.48.2773 And Janardana also, that lion among the Vrishnis, endued with the knowledge of the invisible future, without doubt, beholdeth all this.
Mbh.5.55.3030 I think also that with the exception of Vidura all of you will be slain, although the chief of the Kurus, Dhritarashtra, conversant with morality, will not be included in the slaughter, O sire, effecting our complete destruction, Janardana wisheth to bestow upon Yudhishthira the entire kingdom of the Kurus.
Mbh.5.68.3460 If the whole universe be placed on one scale and Janardana on the other, even then Janardana will outweigh the entire universe.
Mbh.5.68.3461 Janardana, at his pleasure, can reduce the universe to ashes, but the entire universe is incapable of reducing Janardana to ashes.
Mbh.5.68.3464 That soul of all creatures, most exalted of male beings, Janardana, guideth, as if in sport, the entire earth, the firmament, and the heaven.
Mbh.5.68.3466 Janardana wisheth to blast thy wicked sons that are all addicted to sin.
Mbh.5.69.3479 Dhritarashtra said, O son of Gavalgana, what is the nature of that Faith which thou hast in Janardana and in consequence of which thou knowest the slayer of Madhu to be the union of the Gross, the Subtle, and the Cause'
Mbh.5.69.3481 Having obtained purity of Soul through Faith, I have known Janardana from the scriptures.
Mbh.5.69.3482 Dhritarashtra said, O Duryodhana, seek thou the protection of Janardana, otherwise called Hrishikesa.
Mbh.5.69.3499 Sanjaya said, A man of uncontrolled mind can by no means know Janardana whose soul is under perfect command.
Mbh.5.70.3515 He is called Pundarikaksha from Pundarika implying his high and eternal abode, and Aksha implying indestructible; and he is called Janardana because he striketh fear into the hearts of all wicked beings.
Mbh.5.72.3549 Abiding by counsels of Suyodhana, the king, O Janardana, actuated by avarice and seeking his own good, behaveth untruthfully towards us.
Mbh.5.72.3550 What can be more sorrowful, O Janardana, than this, that I am unable to maintain my mother and my friends?
Mbh.5.72.3611 Even after slaying one's foes, repentance, O Janardana, possesseth the heart.
Mbh.5.72.3638 Dhritarashtra, therefore, O Janardana, is worthy of our respect and worship.
Mbh.5.72.3645 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, Janardana replied unto Yudhishthira the just, saying, I will go to the court of the Kurus for the sake of both of You.
Mbh.5.76.3779 If, indeed, thou really knowest not my prowess which is like the fierce energy of the midday sun thou wilt then know it, O Janardana, in the fierce melee of battle.
Mbh.5.78.3817 SECTION LXXVIII Arjuna said, O Janardana, Yudhishthira hath already said what should be said.
Mbh.5.78.3828 If thou strivest, O Janardana, such is this act that it will be soon effected.
Mbh.5.80.3878 The period of our exile having ceased, hearing, O hero, that we have returned, an army numbering full seven Akshauhinis hath, through thy grace, O Janardana, been assembled.
Mbh.5.80.3886 When thou, O Janardana, art the speaker and Vidura the listener, what subject is there that cannot be rendered smooth and plain
Mbh.5.82.3900 And beholding Bhimasena declare for peace, that intelligent lady, overwhelmed with woe and with eyes bathed in tears, said, O slayer of Madhu, it is known to thee, O thou of mighty arms, by what deceitful means, O righteous one, the son of Dhritarashtra with his counsellors robbed the Pandavas, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.82.3914 Persons conversant with the scriptures declare, O Janardana, that sin is incurred in slaying one that deserveth not to be slain.
Mbh.5.82.3917 From excess of confidence in thee, O Janardana, I will repeat what hath been said again and again.
Mbh.5.82.3932 O Janardana, thou knowest all these sorrows of mine.
Mbh.5.83.3964 It was at such a time that Janardana, the foremost of mighty persons, in enjoyment of excellent health, having heard the auspicious, sacred-sounding and sweet words of gratified Brahmanas, like Vasava himself hearing the adorations of the celestial Rishis, and having also gone through the customary acts and rites of the morning, purified himself by a bath, and decked his person with unguents and ornaments, worshipped both the Sun and Fire.
Mbh.5.83.3965 And having touched the tail of a bull and reverently bowed to the Brahmanas, walked round the sacred fire, and cast his eyes on the usual auspicious articles placed in view, Janardana recollected Yudhishthira's word and addressed Sini's grandson Satyaki, seated near, saying, Let my car be made ready and let my conch and discus along with my mace, and quivers and darts and all kinds of weapons, offensive and defensive, be placed on it, for Duryodhana and Karna and Suvala's son are all of wicked souls, and foes, however contemptible, should never be disregarded by even a powerful person.
Mbh.5.83.3987 Yudhishthira said, That lady who hath brought us from our infancy; who is ever engaged in facts and ascetic penances and propitiatory rites and ceremonies; who is devoted to the worship of the gods and guests; who is always engaged in waiting upon her superiors who is fond of her sons, bearing for them an affection that knows no bounds; who, O Janardana, is dearly loved by us; who, O grinder of foes, repeatedly saved us from the snares of Suyodhana, like a boat saving a ship-wrecked crew from the frightful terrors of the sea; and who, O Madhava, however undeserving of woe herself, hath on our account endured countless sufferings, should be asked about her welfare-Salute and embrace, and, oh, comfort her over and over, overwhelmed with grief as she is on account of her sons by talking of the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.83.3998 If, however, Dhritarashtra's son, who always adopts improper means, acts otherwise, then I shall surely, O Janardana, annihilate the Kshatriya race'
Mbh.5.83.4004 And after all the kings had desisted following him, Janardana set out with a cheerful heart on his car drawn by Saivya, Sugriva, and others.
Mbh.5.83.4006 And on his way Kesava of mighty arms met with some Rishis blazing with Brahmic lustre, standing on both sides of the road, And soon alighting from his car, Janardana saluted them reverently.
Mbh.5.83.4014 Thus addressed, Jamadagni's son, the friend of Brahma, that lord of both gods and Asuras, approached Govinda the slayer of Madhu, embraced him, and said, The celestial Rishis of pious deeds, and Brahmanas of extensive acquaintance with the scriptures, and royal sages, O Dasarha, and venerable ascetic, these witnesses, O illustrious one, of the former feats of gods and Asuras, are desirous of beholding all the Kshatriyas of the earth assembled from every side as also the counsellors sitting in the assembly, the kings, and thyself the embodiment of truth, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.86.4078 SECTION LXXXVI Dhritarashtra said, O Vidura, Janardana hath set out from Upaplavya.
Mbh.5.86.4080 Janardana is the leader of the Ahukas, the foremost person amongst all the members of the Sattwata race, is high-souled, and endued with great energy and great might.
Mbh.5.86.4095 And the beautiful girls that will go out of the town for receiving Janardana will go out unveiled.
Mbh.5.87.4121 Save only a vessel of water, save only the washing of his feet, save only the usual enquiries after the welfare of those he will see, Janardana will not accept any other hospitality or set his eyes on any other thing.
Mbh.5.87.4122 Offer him, however, O king, that hospitality which is the most agreeable to that illustrious one deserving of every respect, for there is no respect that may not be offered to Janardana.
Mbh.5.88.4128 SECTION LXXXVIII Duryodhana said, All that Vidura hath said about Krishna, hath indeed, been truly said; for Janardana is greatly devoted to the Pandavas and can never be separated from them.
Mbh.5.88.4129 All the diverse kinds of wealth, O foremost of kings, that are proposed to be bestowed upon Janardana ought never to be bestowed upon him.
Mbh.5.88.4135 continued, Hearing these words of his, the Grandsire of the Kurus spoke these words unto the royal son of Vichitravirya, Worshipped or not worshipped, Janardana never becometh angry.
Mbh.5.88.4139 Truly Janardana, possessed of virtuous soul, will say what is consistent with religion and profit.
Mbh.5.88.4143 I will imprison Janardana who is the refuge of the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.88.4145 What may be the means for accomplishing it, so that Janardana may not guess our purpose, and so that no danger also may overtake us, it behoveth thee to say'
Mbh.5.89.4169 And upon that son of Dasarha's race approaching his presence, the blind monarch of great fame stood up along with Drona and Bhishma, Kripa and Somadatta, and king Vahlika also, all stood up for honouring Janardana.
Mbh.5.89.4172 And Janardana then accosted the illustrious Drona and his son, and Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta.
Mbh.5.89.4174 And at Dhritarashtra's request, Achyuta took that seat; and the priests of Dhritarashtra duly offered Janardana a cow, honey and curds and water.
Mbh.5.89.4177 And Madhava having duly greeted all the Kurus in their assembly, then went to the delightful abode of Vidura; and Vidura, having approached Janardana of Dasarha's race thus arrived at his abode, worshipped him with every auspicious and desirable offering.
Mbh.5.90.4181 SECTION XC Vaisampayana said, Janardana, the chastiser of foes, after his meeting with Vidura, went then in the afternoon to his paternal aunt, Pritha.
Mbh.5.90.4189 That they who while at home, used to sleep in high palatial chambers on soft blankets and skins of the Runku deer and were waked up in the morning by the grunt of elephants, the neighing of steeds, the clatter of car-wheels and the music of conchs and cymbals in accompaniment with the notes of flutes and lyres, who, adored at early dawn with sacred sounding hymns uttered by Brahmanas, worshipped those amongst them that deserved such worship with robes and jewels and ornaments, and who were blessed with the auspicious benedictions of those illustrious members of the regenerate order, as a return for the homage the latter received, that they, O Janardana, could sleep in the deep woods resounding with the shrill and dissonant cries of beasts of prey can hardly be believed, undeserving as they were of so much woe.
Mbh.5.90.4192 He that hath the strength of ten thousand elephants and the speed of the wind, he that is mighty and ever wrathful amongst the sons of Pandu, he that always doth good to his brothers and is, therefore, dear to them all, he, O slayer of Madhu, that slew Kichaka with all his relatives, he that is the slayer of the Krodhavasas, of Hidimva, and of Vaka, he that in prowess is equal unto Sakra, and in might unto the Wind-god, he that is terrible, and in wrath is equal unto Madhava himself, he that is the foremost of all smiters, that wrathful son of Pandu and chastiser of foes, who, restraining his rage, might, impatience, and controlling his soul, is obedient to the commands of his elder brother, speak to me, O Janardana, tell me how is that smiter of immeasurable valour, that Bhimasena, who in aspect also justifies his name, that Vrikodara possessing arms like maces, that mighty second son of Pandu?
Mbh.5.90.4198 More than all my sons, O Janardana, is the daughter of Drupada dear to me.
Mbh.5.90.4212 The thought consumeth, O Kesava, that being dragged into the presence of all the Kurus in their assembly by Dhritarashtra's sons, insults worse than death were heaped on Krishna, O chastiser of foes, the banishment of my sons from their capital and their wanderings in the wilderness, these and various other griefs, O Janardana, have been mine.
Mbh.5.90.4232 Practically, O Janardana, my children are all dead to me and I am dead to them.
Mbh.5.90.4235 Fie to them that live, O Janardana, by dependence on others.
Mbh.5.90.4270 Thus consoled by Krishna, Kunti, afflicted with grief on account of her sons, but soon dispelling the darkness caused by her temporary loss of understanding, replied unto Janardana, saying, Whatever, O mighty-armed one, thou, O slayer of Madhu, regardest as proper to be done, let that be done without sacrificing righteousness, O chastiser of foes, and without the least guile.
Mbh.5.91.4284 And the Kuru king then offered unto Janardana a cow, and honey and curds and water, and placed at his service palaces and mansions and the whole kingdom.
Mbh.5.91.4287 The Kuru king Duryodhana seated in the midst of the Kurus, in a gentle voice but with deception lurking behind his words, eyeing Karna, and addressing Kesava, then said, Why, O Janardana, dost thou not accept the diverse kinds of viands and drinks, robes and beds that have all been prepared and kept ready for thee?
Mbh.5.91.4294 Thus answered, Dhritarashtra's son again said unto Janardana, It behoveth thee not, O Kesava, to behave towards us in this way, Whether thou becomest successful, or unsuccessful, we are endeavouring to please thee, O slayer of Madhu, because of thy relationship with us.
Mbh.5.91.4300 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the king, Janardana of Dasarha's race, casting his eyes on Dhritarashtra's son and ah his counsellors, replied, saying, Not from desire, nor from wrath, nor from malice, nor for gain, nor for the sake of argument, nor from temptation, would I abandon virtue.
Mbh.5.92.4325 SECTION XCII Vaisampayana said, After Kesava had dined and been refreshed, Vidura said unto him during the night, O Kesava, this advent of thine hath not been a well judged one, for, O Janardana, Dhritarashtra's son transgresseth the rules of both profit and religion, is wicked and wrathful, insulteth others, though himself desirous of honours, and disobeyeth the commands of the aged.
Mbh.5.92.4334 He hath great faith in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and Jayadratha, and, therefore, he never setteth his heart on peace, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.92.4351 The sons of Dhritarashtra, O Janardana, are inspired with the firm belief that at present Indra himself, at the head of all the celestials, is incapable of defeating them in battle.
Mbh.5.94.4394 And rising from bed, Janardana of Dasarha's race, that bull amongst all the Sattwatas, went through all the customary acts of the morning.
Mbh.5.94.4399 And when the sun had risen a little higher, Janardana, that chastiser of foes, summoning a number of Brahmanas, made them presents of gold and robes and kine and steeds.
Mbh.5.94.4402 And understanding that his handsome car adorned with every ornament and producing a rattle, deep as the rumbling of the mighty masses of clouds, was ready, the high-souled Janardana, that delighter of all the Yadavas, walking round the sacred fire and a band of Brahmanas, and putting on the gem known by the name of Kaustubha, and blazing with beauty, surrounded by the Kurus, and well-protected by the Vrishnis, mounted on it.
Mbh.5.94.4412 And, O chastiser of foes, all the citizens of the capital, of all ages and both sexes, desirous of beholding Janardana came out into the streets.
Mbh.5.94.4421 And Bhishma and Drona, and others with Dhritarashtra were on the point of rising up from their seats for honouring Janardana.
Mbh.5.94.4438 And all the kings in the assembly, although they gazed at Janardana of Dasarha's race for a long while, were not, however, gratified with their gaze, like drinkers of the Amrita, that are never satiated with quaffing measure after measure.
Mbh.5.94.4439 And Janardana attired in yellow robes having the complexion of the Atasi flower, sat in the midst of that assembly like a sapphire mounted on gold.
Mbh.5.96.4595 Janardana again, is superior to him.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.124.5476 By doing this, O Janardana, thou shalt have done that noble act which a friend should ever do'
Mbh.5.127.5624 Even this, O Janardana, is our highest duty as Kshatriyas, viz, that we should lay ourselves down on the field of battle on a bed of arrows.
Mbh.5.127.5632 As long, O Janardana, as king Dhritarashtra liveth, both ourselves and they, sheathing our weapons, O Madhava, should live in dependence on him.
Mbh.5.127.5633 Given away formerly from ignorance or fear, when I was a child and dependent on others, the kingdom, O Janardana, incapable of being given away again, shall not, O delighter of Vrishni's race, be obtainable by the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.128.5664 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of his brother, Dhritarashtra's son, wicked, shameless, disobedient, disrespectful, and vain Suyodhana, breathing heavily like a great snake rose up from his seat in anger, and disregarding Vidura, and Dhritarashtra and the great king Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Janardana, in fact, all of them, went out of the court, And beholding that bull among men leave the court, his brother and all his counsellors, and all the kings, followed him.
Mbh.5.128.5667 I see also, O Janardana, that the hour of all those Kshatriyas is arrived, for all those kings, from delusion, have with their counsellors followed Duryodhana'
Mbh.5.130.5760 And this was the resolution which Duryodhana and Karna and Suvala's son Sakuni, with Dussasana as their fourth, arrived at, This Janardana, quick in action, seeketh, with the king Dhritarashtra and Santanu's son, to seize us first.
Mbh.5.130.5779 If Janardana wisheth, he can send all of them, even if they fight in a body, unto the abode of Yama, like an enraged lion dispatching a herd of elephants.
Mbh.5.131.5833 And beholding that awful form of the high-souled Kesava, all the kings closed their eyes with affrighted hearts, except Drona, and Bhishma, and Vidura, endued with great intelligence, greatly blessed Sanjaya, and the Rishis, possessed of wealth of asceticism, for the divine Janardana gave unto them this divine sight on the occasion.
Mbh.5.131.5845 And that chastiser of foes, Sauri, who had his car ready, was about to depart, king Dhritarashtra addressed him once more and said, O grinder of foes, thou hast seen, O Janardana, the power I wield over my sons!
Mbh.5.131.5852 Vaisampayana continued, The mighty-armed Janardana then addressed Dhritarashtra, Drona, grandsire Bhishma, Kshattri, Vahlika, and Kripa and said, Ye have yourselves witnessed all that hath happened in the assembly of the Kurus, viz, how wicked Duryodhana, like an uneducated wretch, left the court from anger, and how king Dhritarashtra also describeth himself to be powerless.
Mbh.5.137.6168 Say unto them, O Janardana, that I am well.
Mbh.5.139.6247 How wilt thou vanquish that son of Pandu who hath Janardana.
Mbh.5.141.6292 My mother, while a maiden, bore me in her womb, O Janardana, through her connection with Surya.
Mbh.5.141.6300 O Madhava, that Adhiratha, O Janardana, from paternal affection caused all the rites of infancy to be performed on my person, according to the rules prescribed in the scriptures.
Mbh.5.141.6303 Through them have been born my sons and grandsons, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.141.6313 For the sake of death, or the ties of blood, or fear, or temptation, I cannot venture, O Janardana, to behave falsely towards the intelligent son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.5.141.6324 Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, Uttamaujas, Yudhamanyu, the prince of Somakas who is devoted to truth, the ruler of the Chedis, Chekitana, the invincible Sikhandin, the Kekaya brothers, all of the hue of Indragopaka insects, Bhimasena's uncle Kuntibhoja of high soul and possessed of steeds endued with the colours of the rainbow, the mighty car-warrior Syenajit, Sanka the son of Virata, and thyself, O Janardana, like an ocean, great is this assemblage, O Krishna, of Kshatriyas that hath been made by Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.141.6327 Thou, O Janardana, wilt be the Upadrashtri of that sacrifice.
Mbh.5.141.6335 The two sons of Madri, Nakula and Sahadeva, of great fame and prowess, will be the slayers of the sacrificial animals; rows of bright cars furnished with standards of variegated hue, will, O Govinda, be stakes for tying the animals, O Janardana, in this sacrifice.
Mbh.5.141.6349 When the two princes of Panchala Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin will overthrow Drona and Bhishma, then, O Janardana, will this sacrifice be suspended for an interval.
Mbh.5.141.6351 When the wives of Dhritarashtra's sons and grandsons assembled together, deprived, O Kesava, of their husbands and sons and without protectors, will indulge in lamentations with Gandhari in their midst, on the field of battle haunted by dogs and vultures and other carnivorous birds, then, O Janardana, will the final bath of this sacrifice take place.
Mbh.5.141.6352 I pray to thee, O bull of the Kshatriya race, let not the Kshatriyas, old in learning and old in years, perish miserably, O Janardana, for thy sake.
Mbh.5.141.6355 As long, O Janardana, as the hills and the rivers will last, so long will the fame of these achievements last.
Mbh.5.143.6421 In the midst of the same vision, thou, O Janardana, wast beheld by me to be employed in enveloping the blood-dyed earth with weapons.
Mbh.5.143.6432 Amongst the soldiers of Dhritarashtra's son, these three, O Janardana, were beheld by me decked with white head-gears.
Mbh.5.143.6435 I saw also, O thou of mighty arms, that those mighty car-warriors Bhishma and Drona, ascending on a vehicle drawn by camels, and by myself, and Dhritarashtra's son, proceeded, O lord, to the quarter, O Janardana, ruled by Agastya.
Mbh.5.145.6502 Let Karna and Arjuna be named in the same breath as Rama and Janardana.
Mbh.5.147.6564 O Janardana, say it all unto us, exactly as it happened.
Mbh.5.151.6756 SECTION CLI Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of Janardana, king Yudhishthira the Just, of virtuous soul, addressed his brothers in the presence of Kesava and said, Ye have heard all that had happened in the court of the assembled Kurus.
Mbh.5.158.6994 And handsome Janardana endued with great intelligence, he who was the younger brother of Sankarshana, was chosen as the guide of Arjuna and the driver of his steeds'
Mbh.5.159.7032 He had set out in pursuit, having sworn that he would not return without having slain Janardana.
Mbh.5.163.7383 Having heard then, O best of Bharata's race, those words of Duryodhana, Yudhishthira, that bull of the Bharata race, with eyes exceedingly red in anger and himself sighing like a snake of virulent poison, licking the corners of his mouth with his tongue, as if swelling with wrath, and casting his eyes on Janardana and his own brothers, said unto Uluka these words that were fraught with both mildness and vigour.
Mbh.5.163.7396 O fool, thou thinkest Janardana will not fight, since he hath been chosen by the Pandavas to act only as a charioteer, so thou art not alarmed.
Mbh.6.22.1011 Unto that invincible prince Gudakesa staying in the midst of his troops, Janardana, O chief of Bharata's race, said, He, who scorching us with his wrath, stayeth in the midst of his forces, he, who will attack our troops like a lion, he, who performed three hundred horse-sacrifices, that banner of Kuru's race, that Bhishma, stayeth yonder!
Mbh.6.25.1101 What gratification can be ours, O Janardana, by slaying the Dhartarashtras?
Mbh.6.27.1233 SECTION XXVII Bhagavad Gita Chapter III Arjuna said, If devotion, O Janardana, is regarded by thee as superior to work, why then, O Kesava, dost thou engage me in such dreadful work?
Mbh.6.34.1586 Do thou again, O Janardana, copiously declare thy mystic powers and thy perfections, for I am never satiated with hearing thy nectar-like words
Mbh.6.35.1715 Arjuna said, Beholding this gentle human form of thine, O Janardana, I have now become of right mind and have come to my normal state'
Mbh.6.50.2597 SECTION L Sanjaya said, When the troops, O bull of Bharata's race, were withdrawn on the first day, and when Duryodhana was filled with delight upon beholding Bhishma excited with wrath in battle, king Yudhisthira the just, speedily repaired unto Janardana, accompanied by all his brothers and all the kings on his side.
Mbh.6.52.2694 And this Drona, and Kripa and Salya and Vikarna, O Janardana, united with Dhritarashtra's sons headed by Duryodhana, and protected by this firm bowman, will slaughter the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.52.2695 Even I, therefore, shall stay Bhishma for the sake of my troops, O Janardana'
Mbh.6.56.2989 And next, on the left horn of that array, was that best of men, viz, he who had for his protector, Janardana, that protector of the whole Universe.
Mbh.6.59.3218 Hearing that promise and oath of his, Janardana became gratified.
Mbh.6.59.3253 And then the bearer of Gandiva himself, and Janardana both filled with delight, uttered loud roars.
Mbh.6.67.3691 And O sire, in consequence of Madhu's slaughter, the gods, the Danavas, and human beings, and Rishis, call Janardana the slayer of Madhu.
Mbh.6.67.3703 Those men who attain to Krishna are never beguiled, Janardana always saveth those that are sunk in great terrors.
Mbh.6.82.4299 This very day I shall slay them all, O Janardana, before thy eyes, them, that is, O foremost of the Yadus, who, longing for battle with me, are on the field'
Mbh.6.108.5816 O Janardana, he will truly give us beneficial counsel; and O Krishna, I will do in battle what he will say.
Mbh.6.122.6780 Thus addressed by Krishna, king Yudhishthira the just, replied unto Janardana, saying, Through Thy grace is Victory, through Thy wrath is Defeat!
Mbh.6.122.6785 Thus addressed by him, Janardana answered with a smile, O best of kings, these words can come from thee alone
Mbh.6.123.6826 Dhritarashtra's son Duryodhana listened not to the words repeatedly spoken by me and Vidura and Drona and Rama and Janardana and also by Sanjaya.
Mbh.7.11.410 The mighty-armed Janardana also caused Jarasandha, the lord of a full Akshauhini of troops, to be slain through the instrumentality of another
Mbh.7.11.427 And there where Janardana is, there will be the heroic Rama, equal in strength to ten thousand elephants, resembling the Kailasa peak, decked with garlands of wild flowers, and armed with the plough.
Mbh.7.25.1337 Covered with those arrows, O monarch, neither Kunti's son Partha, nor Krishna, otherwise called Janardana, nor the steeds, nor the car, could be seen.
Mbh.7.25.1338 Then Janardana became deprived of his senses and perspired greatly.
Mbh.7.26.1379 Beholding that angry elephant advancing like Death himself, Janardana quickly moved his car in such a way as to keep the elephant on his left.
Mbh.7.47.2217 SECTION XLVII Sanjaya said, That joy of Vishnu's sister viz, Abhimanyu, that Atiratha, decked with the weapons of Vishnu himself, looked exceedingly beautiful on the field of battle and looked like a second Janardana.
Mbh.7.70.3001 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, Vibhatsu, beholding the camp joyless and melancholy and everything to be in confusion, addressed Krishna with an agonised heart, and said, O Janardana, no auspicious trumpet blows today, its blasts mingled with the beat of drums and the loud blare of conchs.
Mbh.7.77.3370 In the middle of the night, Janardana, having awaked, remembered Partha's vow, and addressing his charioteer Daruka, said, Arjuna, in grief for the death of his son, hath vowed.
Mbh.7.81.3573 SECTION LXXXIII Sanjaya said, Then king Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, saluting Devaki's son Janardana, and cheerfully addressed him saying Hast thou passed the night happily, O slayer of Madhu?
Mbh.7.81.3588 O Janardana, as thou always savest the Vrishnis in all calamities, even so it behoveth thee to save us from this distress, O mighty-armed one!
Mbh.7.82.3607 And addressing him smilingly, he said, It is evident, O Arjuna, that complete victory certainly awaits thee in battle, judging from thy countenance bright and cheerful as it is, and by the fact that Janardana is well-pleased with thee.
Mbh.7.82.3614 And those two invincible warriors, those two heroes, viz, Yuyudhana, and Janardana, together proceeded on the same car to Arjuna's pavilion.
Mbh.7.82.3622 and Janardana mounted on that car, like the twin Aswins riding the same car with Indra while coming to the sacrifice of Saryati.
Mbh.7.83.3668 When Janardana of unfading glory came from Upaplavya, desirous of peace, from compassion for every creature, I then, O Suta, said unto the wicked Duryodhana: Obtaining Vasudeva as the means, make peace with the Pandavas, O son!
Mbh.7.84.3741 Them that have Arjuna for their warrior, them that have Janardana for their counsellor, them that have Satyaki and Vrikodara for their protectors, what mortal bowman is there that would dare fight with, save the Kauravas and those that are following their lead?
Mbh.7.89.3972 And he pierced Partha with three arrows, and Janardana with seventy.
Mbh.7.89.3996 With that hero-slaying mace he attacked Janardana, The valiant Krishna received that mace on one of his well-formed and stout shoulders.
Mbh.7.89.4000 And because, O monarch, Srutayudha had hurled that mace at Janardana who was not engaged in fighting it slew him who had hurled it.
Mbh.7.96.4404 And it was in this way that Janardana proceeded, guiding the car.
Mbh.7.96.4416 Filled with joy, they pierced Arjuna with four and sixty shafts, and Janardana with seventy, and the four steeds of Arjuna's car with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.7.96.4458 Then, in course of that battle, the mighty-armed Janardana, fearlessly addressing that dear friend of his, that foremost of men, viz, Arjuna, said unto him.
Mbh.7.100.4641 Behold now, O Janardana, the might of my arms and that of my bow too.
Mbh.7.100.4650 Beholding those shafts of his thus frustrated from a distance by that utterer of Brahma Aswatthaman, Arjuna, owning white steeds, filled with amazement represented unto Kesava, saying, I cannot, Janardana, twice use this weapon, for if do so, it will slay my own self and my own troops.
Mbh.7.101.4705 Beholding Janardana pierced, Arjuna, filled with rage, struck Aswatthaman with hundred shafts.
Mbh.7.123.6109 Without doubt, Arjuna having been slain, Janardana is fighting.
Mbh.7.143.7349 Janardana then quickly addressed the son of Pandu and said, Behold, O Partha, the ruler of the Sindhus hath, by six mighty and heroic car-warriors, been placed in their-midst!
Mbh.7.143.7401 Then Janardana, once more addressing Arjuna, quickly said, O Dhananjaya, quickly cut off the head of the wicked-souled ruler of the Sindhus!
Mbh.7.144.7480 Urge my steeds, O Janardana, towards the spot whither Karna cometh.
Mbh.7.144.7495 Janardana, O king, knoweth both the past and the future.
Mbh.7.145.7634 Having shown the field of battle unto the diadem-decked hero, that slayer of foes viz, Janardana quickly proceeded towards Ajatasatru, the son of Pandu, and informed him of the slaying of Jayadratha
Mbh.7.170.9187 Seeing the Panchalas slaughtered and routed, Janardana becoming cheerless, said these words unto Phalguna, Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, accompanied by the Panchalas, had proceeded against those great bowmen, viz, Drona and Karna, shooting many shafts.
Mbh.7.170.9192 Then Janardana beholding Vrikodara advancing, once more addressed Arjuna, the son of Pandu, as if for gladdening him, in these words, Yonder Bhima, who taketh delight in battle, surrounded by the Somakas and the Pandavas, is coming against those mighty car-warriors, viz, Drona and Karna.
Mbh.7.178.9694 O Janardana, the cause must be very grave when at such a time thou feelest such joy.
Mbh.7.178.9698 This act of thine, O Janardana, this lightness of heart, seems to me like the drying up of the ocean or the locomotion of Meru'
Mbh.7.179.9729 SECTION CLXXXI Arjuna said, How, O Janardana, for our good, and by what means, were those lords of the earth, viz, Jarasandha and the others, slain'
Mbh.7.180.9795 Sanjaya said, Knowing the feat that Karna desired to achieve, the slayer of Madhu, the mighty-armed Janardana, O king, commanded the prince of the Rakshasas, Ghatotkacha of mighty energy, to engage in single combat with Karna for rendering, O monarch, the latter's fatal dart fruitless.
Mbh.7.180.9798 Indeed, Partha would have been destroyed with his steeds, standard, and car, in battle, Oh Dhritarashtra, if that master, that lord of Yogins, viz, Janardana had not saved him.
Mbh.7.180.9824 Reflecting well, I see that there is no person in the three worlds who is able to vanquish that chastiser of foes, viz, Janardana, that hero bearing the discus in hand'
Mbh.7.180.9825 Sanjaya continued, That tiger among car-warriors, viz, Satyaki of prowess incapable of being baffled, asked the mighty-armed Krishna about the great car-warrior, Karna, saving, O Janardana, even this had been Karna's firm resolution, viz, that he would hurl that dart of immeasurable energy at Phalguna.
Mbh.7.181.9873 Whilst we were living in the woods the high-souled son of Hidimva, although then a mere child did us many services, O Janardana!
Mbh.7.181.9879 My affection for Ghatotkacha, that prince of the Rakshasas is twice that, O Janardana, which I naturally bear towards Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.181.9887 How, O Janardana, when we are alive and thyself too, could Hidimva's son be slain while engaged with the Suta's son?
Mbh.7.181.9912 Indeed, Janardana followed in the wake of the king who was now at a distance.
Mbh.7.193.10702 Let the Pandavas, with Janardana among them, behold my energy today, while I grind all their troops, achieving what is done by the destroyer himself at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.193.10709 Neither Vibhatsu, nor Janardana, nor Bhimasena, nor Nakula, nor Sahadeva, nor king Yudhishthira, nor Prishata's wicked-souled son Dhrishtadyumna, nor Sikhandin, nor Satyaki, O Kauravya, knoweth that weapon which I have, along with the mantras, for hurting and withdrawing it.
Mbh.7.199.11542 Go and fight, O son of Kunti, defeat is not for thee, that hast Janardana.
Mbh.8.9.320 He who, disregarding the fierce touch of the arrows shot from gandiva had addressed Krishna, saying, Thou hast no husbands now and glared at the Pandavas, he who, O Sanjaya, relying on the might of his own arms, had entertained no fear, for even a moment, of the Parthas with their sons and Janardana, he, I think, could not possibly meet with death at the hands of the very gods with Vasava at their head rushing against him in fury, what then need I say, O sire, of the Pandavas?
Mbh.8.10.395 Karna said, I have, O son of Gandhari, said before in thy presence, even these words, vanquish all the Pandavas with their sons and Janardana'
Mbh.8.16.659 Thus summoned by the preceptor's son from desire of battle, Arjuna regarded himself highly honoured, and addressing Janardana said, The samsaptakas should be slain by me, but Drona's son again is summoning me.
Mbh.8.18.739 Even Dandadhara pierced Arjuna with a dozen foremost of shafts and Janardana with sixteen and each of the steeds with three, and then uttered a loud shout and laughed repeatedly.
Mbh.8.18.742 Desirous of agitating Janardana with that tusker of his, whose temples had split from excitement, and which resembled a mass of clouds and was endued with the speed of the wind, Dandadhara struck Dhananjaya with many lances.
Mbh.8.18.748 Danda struck Janardana with three whetted lances bright as the rays of the sun, and Arjuna with five, and uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.8.20.814 Sanjaya said, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Karna and Arjuna and Janardana, those thorough masters of the science of weapons, are regarded by thee as the foremost of car-warriors.
Mbh.8.42.2312 Therefore, I have no fear from Partha, nor from Janardana.
Mbh.8.45.2469 Without doubt, Vishnu, otherwise, called Janardana, protects all creatures.
Mbh.8.53.3001 Then Susharma, piercing Partha with ten shafts, struck Janardana with three in the right arm.
Mbh.8.56.3223 During the progress of that fierce battle filling the spectators with wonder, Arjuna, that foremost of various persons, having slain a large number of samsaptakas in the midst of their array, addressed Vasudeva, saying, This struggling force of samsaptakas, O Janardana, is broken.
Mbh.8.58.3324 The third part of the day still remaineth, Janardana.
Mbh.8.67.3892 Then, in that battle, O Bharata, the preceptor's son, that foremost of heroes among the Kurus, incapable of being made to tremble, began to afflict me and Janardana with whetted shafts resembling poison or fire.
Mbh.8.69.3986 By that I will dispel my grief and fever, O Janardana.
Mbh.8.70.4099 SECTION Sanjaya said, Thus addressed by Janardana, Pritha's son Arjuna, applauding those counsels of his friend, then vehemently addressed king Yudhishthira the just, in language that was harsh and the like of which he had never used before.
Mbh.8.74.4480 I see the Pancala host is flying away, O Janardana.
Mbh.8.76.4620 There, by the side of Janardana, reins in hand, as he penetrates into the hostile army, behold his discus of solar effulgence, its nave hard as thunder, and its edge sharp as a razor.
Mbh.8.79.4794 There, the Pancalas, afraid of Karna, are flying away, O Janardana.
Mbh.8.79.4800 Otherwise, the son of Radha, O Janardana, will, in my sight, exterminate the mighty car-warriors of the Parthas and the Srinjayas
Mbh.8.85.5188 And he pierced Bhima with three arrows and Nakula with seven and Janardana with a dozen.
Mbh.8.85.5191 The diadem-decked Arjuna then, that slayer of hostile heroes, seeing Madri's son Nakula, that foremost of men, deprived of his steeds in the midst of all, and beholding Janardana mangled with arrows, rushed in that battle against Vrishasena who was then staying in front of the Suta's son Karna.
Mbh.8.87.5380 Hearing these words of Krishna, the ape-bannered Arjuna, smiling, replied unto Krishna who was never fatigued with exertion, saying, Shalya and Karna, united together, are not a match for myself alone, O Janardana!
Mbh.8.88.5426 Janardana also doth not desire hostilities.
Mbh.8.89.5530 Indeed, urged by Bhima and Janardana, and recollecting his woes, and taking an internal survey of himself, and calling to mind the object for which he had come to this world, he addressed Keshava, saying, I will now invoke into existence a mighty and fierce weapon for the good of the world and the destruction of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.89.5547 Then piercing Bhimasena and Janardana and the diadem-decked Arjuna of superhuman feats, each with three arrows Karna of terrible might uttered a loud awful roar.
Mbh.8.89.5548 Struck with Karna's shafts, the diadem-decked Arjuna, beholding Bhima and Janardana, became unable to endure the feats of his antagonist.
Mbh.8.90.5698 And he pierced Janardana with a dozen shafts and Arjuna with nine and ninety.
Mbh.8.90.5720 and worshipping Janardana, Arjuna, that foremost of all persons in Kuru's race once more quickly pierced Karna with many excellent arrows like the ruler of heaven, piercing the Asura, Samvara.
Mbh.8.94.6069 Then diverse creatures, uniting together, congratulated Dhananjaya, that hero shining resplendent on the field of battle, as also Janardana, those two foremost of men who then looked like a couple of risen suns.
Mbh.8.96.6142 In this way, O ruler of men, king Yudhishthira the just, praised Janardana greatly as also Arjuna, O monarch'

Mbh.9.25.1693 Only five hundred horses from the remnant of the troops of Shakuni, the son of Subala, and of cars, only two hundred still remain, O Janardana!

Mbh.9.56.4019 Tell me this, O Janardana
Mbh.9.60.4362 Thus addressed by Krishna, King Yudhishthira the just, with hair standing on end, O monarch, said these words unto Janardana: Yudhishthira said, Who else save thee, O grinder of foes, not excepting the thunder-wielding Purandara himself, could have withstood the brahmastras hurled by Drona and Karna!
Mbh.9.61.4384 It seems to me, O Brahmana, that the cause could not be a light one, for it was Janardana of immeasurable soul who had himself to make the journey!
